Indianapolis deploys second-largest electric bus fleet in the US

Complete Coach Works

Complete Coach Works has complete delivery of 21 Zero Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS) electric buses to the Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation (IndyGo).

The 40-foot ZEPS-powered electric buses have been rebuilt with lightweight flooring and seats, low-resistance tires and energy-efficient heating and cooling. They are equipped with air-operated doors, hydraulic power steering, stainless steel bike racks and LED lighting. Each bus carries 36 seated passengers plus standees, and has a range of 130 miles.

The ZEPS buses not only create zero local emissions, but they were remanufactured from existing legacy buses, which achieved significant carbon savings and allowed IndyGo to acquire them at a fraction of the cost of new all-electric buses.

“IndyGo is proud to be a transit leader in alternative energy. We feel it’s important to push the envelope and utilize newer technologies to make our operation as efficient as possible,” said IndyGo CEO Mike Terry.

“The buses look remarkable, almost like brand new buses,” said IndyGo Director of Maintenance Victoria Learn. “The community loves that there is less pollution and it is a much quieter ride.”
